Donald Trump Rallies Troops: 'We're Gonna Get Rid Of That Crooked Woman'

The GOP presidential nominee is mostly on the teleprompter. Mostly.

Going off the teleprompter Tuesday night in Florida, Donald Trump told rally-goers that he would “get rid of” his opponent, Hillary Clinton.

The GOP presidential nominee’s aggressive tone came a day after losing a pivotal debate to Clinton and on the same day that he attacked Alicia Machado, a former Miss Universe, for gaining too much weight after winning his beauty pageant.

Trump, zeroing in on electoral math that he said favored him, promised supporters the campaign was going well. “We’re doin’ good, folks. We’re gonna do something that’s never been done before. Never,” he said. “We’re gonna get rid of that crooked woman. She’s a crooked woman. She’s a very, very dishonest woman.”

He has previously suggested that “Second Amendment people” might take matters into their own hands if a President Clinton attempted to appoint liberal judges. Trump has also suggested that the former secretary of state’s security detail be disarmed.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
